Fresh after its first show of the year, For Folk’s Sake is delighted to announce the popular folk and roots night will be launching in Liverpool on Friday 12 February.
Mikey Kenney – known as Ottersgear on stage – has performed at the Manchester night on two occasions and has been inspired to launch the night in Liverpool.
He said: “I’ve really enjoyed performing at For Folk’s Sake in Manchester and feel it showcases a real high calibre of traditional and acoustic artists.
“Sometimes city centres miss out on this kind of music in such an intimate environment, so I approached Sophie, the promoter of For Folk’s Sake, and asked if she would mind whether I started a similar night in Liverpool under the same umbrella.”
Sophie Parkes, promoter of For Folk’s Sake, said: “I am honoured that Mikey has decided to take FFS to Liverpool and I will support him in any way I can. I am sure Liverpool audiences will be as receptive as they are here in Manchester.”
For Folk’s Sake has been running for almost a year and a half, and aims to bring traditional folk and language-led music to a city centre platform.
For Folk’s Sake launches in Liverpool on Friday 12 February at the Leaf Café. It will feature performances from The Existence Of Harvey Lord, Eliza And The Bear, Harp And A Monkey and Lewis Mason.
